Joe Schilling (Pro MMA Fighter) KOs Drunk Guy in Bar

Postby marvin8 on Thu Jul 01, 2021 8:50 pm

Excerpts from "'I was scared for my life': What we know about Joe Schilling's viral barroom knockout:"

Simon Samano on June 30, 2021 wrote:Former Glory kickboxer and Bellator fighter Joe Schilling was caught on camera knocking out a man cold at a bar. ...

What Balboa had to say

According to the police report, Balboa said Schilling “just hit him for no reason.” Balboa, who was described in the report as “obviously intoxicated” when the alleged assault occurred, didn’t elaborate further on the incident itself, adding that he “only wanted the incident documented in order to file a civil suit against the establishment.” Balboa later stated in a follow-up conversation with police that, after watching the video of the incident, he plans to prosecute Schilling. A bar manager described Balboa as “extremely intoxicated” at the time of the incident.

Schilling claims self-defense

In his initial Instagram post that was removed, Schilling claimed he acted in self-defense and has reiterated that stance in subsequent social media posts.

“Little context: This guy’s rapping like an idiot,” Schilling wrote. “The buss boy who happens to be black walks by, and this idiot bumps into him and screams out, ‘Me and broke n****s, we don’t get along.’ The busboy was seriously offended but doesn’t want to lose his job. As the night goes on, this clown starts looking at me and rapping whatever song is being played while making eye contact with me. I’m like, what’s wrong with this idiot? I go outside to smoke and as I’m walking back in, he bumps into me. I put my hand out to catch him. He immediately says ‘I’m sorry.’ You can see me nod my head like, cool.

“Then he realizes it’s me, the guy he’s been rapping at all night and yells, ‘HEY.’ I turn around, and he flexes on me. … Bad decisions are made every day. I went back and sat down to finish my drink and pay my bill. Two servers, the busboy and DJ came up to thank me. As you can see from this video when he flexed on me, I was scared for my life and simply defending myself against the evil in this world.”

Balboa’s attorney speaks out

Contrary to Schilling’s account of self-defense, Balboa’s lawyer sees the incident as inexcusable. Attorney Robert Solomon told MMA Fighting that his client suffered a head injury but the extent is unknown, adding that the alleged assault “was something that should not have happened.”

“It should not have happened,” Solomon said. “You watch that video and you cringe. This is a professional fighter. To tell me you felt threatened as a professional fighter that’s fighting in the highest level of all the fighting, Bellator and all these things, I don’t buy it. I think it was uncalled for, and there’s consequences when you do things like that. …

“I think a professional fighter overreacted to a situation, that he didn’t need to do what he did, and to punch somebody as hard as he punched this guy, he’s lucky he’s not dead and we’re dealing with a different type of case.”

Balboa then seemingly began to pantomime a strike, and before he could complete his motion, the well-trained Schilling reflexively landed a short right hook, followed by a left, which knocked out the abrasive Florida Man who works as a busboy at an Outback Steakhouse:

I agree. The drunk guy (Balboa) shrugged and took a left step forward, before Joe started lifting his hand to "defend himself." Regarding shenfa/"whole body" movement, Joe lifts his right foot and coordinates his punch with it landing (within a short distance)—similar to the superman punch mechanics.

Also, Joe's subsequent Instagram posts may contradict his "scared for my life" statement. And, someone just happened to be videoing, before Joe entered the picture and the fight started.

In Australia we call that a dog shot

Schilling may be a jerk, but he sure knows how to punch.

The two punches were beautifully executed in coordination with the hip turns and side stepping so that both were backhand blows packed with knockout power. Looks like he intuitively made use of cross-alignment of the body (left hand to right foot and right hand to left foot) as well.

It wasn't a dog shot (sucker punch). Because, Balboa instigated the fight by shrugging and stepping forward, before Schilling lifted his hand.

Yes, I am less concerned with who is the jerk or at fault. It's up to a jury to decide. I am more interested in what I can use/learn from a fight. :)

...that and Joe seamlessly shifts his weight from foot to foot ("whole body") with each punch delivering more force into the opponent. The front foot, back side step (yield) gives him space to turn his front hand into a rear hand power punch, creates an angle and puts Joe in an advantageous defensive position. They were not "backhand blows," as he hit with his fist (rear hand strikes):

Joe's timing of Balboa's forward step (double weight) adds to the KO power of his punch. Not intuitive, Joe's timing (punch) is a trained response with high level trainers.

Pacquiao is trained to time his punches with Roach's steps, forward momentum:
